Through Keep Your Fork Ltd, I’ve been supporting Research Retold, a business which turns complicated research documents into easily-digestible summaries – helping researchers to more effectively communicate their findings.

So I’m delighted that Mihaela Gruia, Research Retold’s founder, was the winner in a competition to receive a £25k equity investment from UK Steel Enterprise through the Y-Accelerator startup programme.

In an article published by Bdaily, Mihaela comments,

“Also, being able to work with Jamie Veitch – a marketing specialist from Keep Your Fork – was instrumental in polishing the presentation for the pitch day and, crucially, developing a marketing plan for Research Retold that underpins our growth strategy.”

It’s also great to learn that the team at UK Steel Enterprise was so impressed with the quality of the Y Accelerator participants that are planning to offer investment to three other businesses which participated in the programme, namely Reach Homes, Brailler and BearHugs Gifts. Keep Your Fork have also supported BearHugs; and I’ve previously interviewed Jon from Reach Homes, here.

Keith Williams, Regional Manager of UK Steel Enterprise, said: “The eight businesses who made it to the final pitch event have been through a challenging programme forcing them to demonstrate the viability of their products time and time again.

“The presentations were excellent and we were only too pleased to announce that we have made an additional £30k of investment available – with £10k each offered to Reach Homes, Brailler and BearHugs Gifts. The quality of the final pitches reflects very well on all those who supported the entrepreneurs and in particular I’d like to thank staff at RiDO who led the programme.”
